I’ve been busy trying to be the best “bot” I can by taking a needed reboot for the past few days. However, news, and all the regulation, restriction, taxes and bans – never stop.

This, for example:

THIS is what they want,

Are You Going to the Vaping Rally Nov. 9th in D.C.?

“It’s consumer-focused, and will not feature advertisements or products for sale.”

We are NOT bots. We are “We, The People”. #VapeRallyDC2019 #WeVapeWeVote #WeThePeople:

Are You Going to the Vaping Rally Nov. 9th in D.C.?

Outrageous Nicotine Tax Bill Passes House Committee

Pavlov’s dog… DING. I’ve been predicting this for SOME time. Vaping products are a replacement for tobacco. They are NOT a replacement for tobacco taxes. Well, regulate, restrict, TAX, and ban.

Outrageous Nicotine Tax Bill Passes House Committee


EVALI and risk communication, explained

VITN rules apply:

“There are principles of good public health practice and there are tactics by which science and the credibility of government bodies are undermined,” he added. “The CDC needs to think hard about why, in their current course of action, they are choosing the latter.”

EVALI and risk communication, explained

FDA Awards “Modified Risk” Status to General Brand Snus Products from Swedish Match

Snus, Kevin? You’re linking this? Yes. LESS harmful. Period.

Dr. Rodu explains: “It took the FDA over five years (during which 2.56 million American smokers died prematurely) to approve this truthful statement that I have documented for 25 years.” -Dr. Rodu takes this from here.

Pressing questions first:

Are you listening? Are you paying attention?


Do YOU vape and vote?

In less than a minute: Tell President Trump. Azar said on Fox that he & the President are removing flavors from the market! Make your voice heard now. Answer that question – quickly, and share it in your spaces:

I VAPE, I VOTE


Are you coming to D.C. on November 9th?

Another quick and easy question – if you’re coming or not!

Are you coming to D.C. on November 9th?

Vaping Twitter Bot Study is Dehumanizing Propaganda

Editor note: I was one of five accused (“Account 3”) of being a bot. Now, that may sound trivial – but I (yeah, me) am described as “creating and releasing false information”, I am “particularly malicious”, and, according to @JoeSmyser @DrArturoNJ @NicholsonForNJ @PublicGoodProj @WSJ @EnergyCommerce, I am “actively involved in misinformation campaigns“.

Think of the underLYING motive for tax dollars wasted while Congress investigates whether I, and four others, of millions of accounts, are “bots” – accused of targeting underage kids. Breaking the law. Really? All this – to manipulate public opinion. What ELSE are they doing this with?

Yes, I’m angry. I’m very angry. But, it is much bigger than myself, or the others above. This IS defamation of character to ALL of us and describes this blog, your tweets, thoughts, any research you and I see performed, explained, and then shared – and very existence of US is described – minimized at best, and meaningless – not worth the attention of anyone’s time.

The original report is linked within by Vaping 360 and guest writer, Amelia Howard did a wonderful job explaining this.

WE, The People

October 1st, Columbus, Ohio Statehouse rally.

Consumers: WE, the people.

That’s YOU.

Over the past few years I’ve seen and heard variations of “we should go to Washington and hold a rally.” Well, dear fellow consumer we, the people, it is beyond time. Suddenly, when President Trump tweeted about vaping, we are IN the national spotlight.

Now is the time for we, the people to come together in one voice – and make our presence known in our nation’s capital. Millions have bravely gone before us, now it is our turn.


“Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”.

What does that mean to we, the people? As long as you’re of legal age, smoke if you like. Or don’t. To me, it means freedom of choice of a less harmful alternative to smoking.. and that includes flavors.

Dateline: December 16, 1773, BOSTON.

Boston Tea Party

I’m confident American small business owners and consumers alike are familiar with the history that helped frame the foundation of the United States.

Enraged by control, taxation, tyranny, and demanding freedom – the Sons of Liberty (merchants/small business owners) decided, defiantly, to throw themselves a tea party in the Boston Harbor. They became #louder.

Before this, boycotts and smuggling – black market – tea was prominent.

Now replace the word tea – with cigarettes. Next, replace the words “No taxation without representation” with “lessharmfulproducts“.

October 1st, concerned citizen from Akron attending the Columbus, Ohio rally.

This is our “Boston Tea Party”.

Despite efforts to circumvent the movement we, the people, vaping products are removing cigarette tax revenue from the government. That’s what small businesses and consumers we, the people, are doing. This is our “Boston Tea Party”.

#WashingtonDC. Harm reduction. We the people. November 9th.

#Louder.


Who

No photo description available.

The United Vapers Alliance (UVA) was formed as a 501(c)(4) organization earlier this year. The sole intent is to educate the public and politicians regarding the benefits of harm reduction via vapor products, and the right to keep flavors on the market as a consumer choice.


Why:

Because the government is WRONG. Our messaging needs to be clear, simple, peaceful, and united. Consumers, we the people’s rights are being infringed, restricted, and may possibly be extinguished by government actions and policy all over the nation. The time for silence is over. The time to be heard is NOW.  For too long, we have waited for our politicians to do the right thing.  No more.

“So whether or not we choose to believe the FDA’s stated intent to entertain the re-introduction of flavored vapes at a later date, this is, at least, a de facto permanent prohibition for smaller operators.” Source

THOUSANDS of citizens like Susan Ripley (below), have created small businesses, creating jobs by investing in this life-changing technology. Now they are fighting for their rights – along with ours.

How:

United Vapers Alliance will LOUDLY inform Congress and the FDA, that if they do NOTHING, 99% of all vape products will be removed from the market by May, 2020.  United Vapers Alliance will fight for the right to live a less harmful lifestyle and see OUR children grow. 

We are an estimated thirteen+ (13+) million strong, with families and friends who have seen the positive change that vapor products have provided.  If our politicians will not listen to our voices we, the people, then our voices will be heard at the ballot box this 2020 election.

Together, consumers will rally with ONE voice, ONE mission, ONE message, and will shake the very foundations of power in Washington D.C..


When and where

WASHINGTON, D.C.

When: November 9, 2019: 12p-4pm
Where: The Ellipse @ 1450 Pennsylvania Ave NW

Footnote:

This Washington, D.C. voyage has the same importance for me personally as my trip to Milwaukee did. This is history in the making. Monumental. I want to stand beside you, the people, with some of the loudest voices representing our country, and to be heard. To change the conversation.

This country was founded on we, the people. Someone was standing up for your rights, the rights of others, and those generations who will follow. This country was founded on #louder voices. This is no different. I consider myself one who speaks for many. I hope to see you there, and don’t be shy. I’ll be the 6′ redhead looking forward to standing beside you and shaking your hand.
